For crying out loud!

Instead of sukkeling with antiquated, complicated manufacture and distribution systems...

Just convert all the text books to PDF and hand out tablets.

You can get tabs cheaper than R1000 which are more than adequate to run PDF reading software.

One tablet per kid is far cheaper than the text books and it will bring every South African child into the digital age.

It's 2012 folks, not 1970 anymore.

Have Pick n Pay and other chains who already have competent distribution systems stock the tabs and parents/kids simply pick it up and hit the "update for grade 5" button.

Hell man, is there not anyone in our government who can actually think?
